Today's song is . . .
If All the Raindrops
If all of the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops,
Oh, what a rain that would be!
I’d stand outside with my mouth open wide,
Singing Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah (open mouth, stick out tongue, lean head back)
If all of the raindrops were lemon drops and gum drops,
Oh, what a rain that would be!

Today's Alphabreaths are . . .
L is for Lion
